    Things I hate about Badminton:

    1. When I play doubles with a weaker partner and the opponents only play to him.
    2. People who pretend to not care/don't try and then lose.
    3. People who mishit the shuttle repeatedly and trash all new (feather) shuttles.
    4. People who talk big while playing a game.

    I hate those double players that do flick serve. They're good to go if there's no line judge

    1. i really hate cheating at the line.
    You clear. It hits the back line. It's obviously in. There's this one guy who ALWAYS calls it out. It's blatantly cheating. Or a doubles flick or high serve and it hits the line or even is in, he calls out.

    2. i hate that in a mixed game, men are expected not to smash on the woman. what if women are prevented from using their strongest shot, a net drop? it doesn't work the other way around...

    3. holding back your frustration with your partner when they make mistakes in a game.

    Errr. Flick serves are perfectly legal in a game of doubles, provided the shuttle is struck below the waist. I guess you mean you hate people who flick serve/ serve illegally and there being no service judge? My main problem is with illegal drive serves rather than illegal flick serves. Where the shuttle starts off at hip height then they move the shuttle and racket up just before serving and hit it somewhere near their face. There is someone at my club who does this all the time and a few local league players do it as well. Trying to tell them otherwise is difficult.

    Although I hate flick serves too, because I'm useless at covering them :P

    Smashing at/ towards the women is a common strategy in local league mixed doubles in the UK where the women usually has the weaker defence. In fact I get moaned at by my mixed partner for not doing this. I guess it depends though. If you are playing socially I know it is sometimes frowned upon.

    No, i mean after i serve a flick and it lands in there is a player i play with who ALWAYS calls it out if it is close. I'm not saying i hate flick serves (although i prefer short..)
    I'm saying I hate ppl who cheat and call it out when its in. Because we let the opponent make the call in our games.

    I was referring to the previous poster, who said he hated people who flick serve. I agree those who call shots that are miles in as out are exceptionally annoying. We let the opponent make the call in our games as well. This can lead to some confrontations especially with older players playing younger players. The older players seem to never hit a shot out (as the younger players abide by the rules and call fairly) while anything the younger players hit near the lines is always out.

    My favourite solution to this problem was when a junior pair just started hitting it at or into the body of the older players all the time. They couldn't call it out then :P Although the older pair really weren't impressed but everyone around thought they thoroughly deserved it.

    I hear you. This sort of thing is rampant here in Vancouver. If you don't see the shuttle land you can't call it out. If you need more than a split second to decide, it's in. If you have to look up at your opponent and half ask "Out?" it's in. If it hits the line, it's in. The person on the receiving end of the shot makes the call, do not call the shot for him, wait until he has made his call then you can argue if you disagree.

    2. i hate that in a mixed game, men are expected not to smash on the woman. what if women are prevented from using their strongest shot, a net drop? it doesn't work the other way around...
    I don't have this problem, don't get mad at me if I hit you, yell at your idiot partner for lifting to me. What about someone smashing at my partner? Chances are I lifted to you because I want my partner to learn a lesson about proper defensive positioning.

    3. holding back your frustration with your partner when they make mistakes in a game.
    We're supposed to hold back our frustration? Ooops.

    I was too busy laughing at a badminton player trying to tell me that Basketball is unpopular to notice anything else he had to say.

    How about people bringing in whole tube of birds when each person should bring one bird to court? I have seen couple of guys do that and it annoy the heck out of me.
    They are in the group as well and most of us uses aeroplane black. So we won't use up all the birds unless we play third game or weather is really dry or whatever.
    Obviously he doesn't want to use his birds. Sometimes, he even take the good used birds.
    Other people in the group are older people with money so they don't seem to mind about it.
    Anybody seen people like that before and how do you handle it?
    I was thinking of bringing in crappy bird and kill all the birds with my big smash to make him cough up his bird. But, I would get tired in 1-2 games.

    For me the cheating problem is still pretty big for me. Just last night I had an argument with a certain fellow I play with who loves to call every shot out. on the back and side lines.

    This touches on an even bigger problem of controlling frustration: sports psychology. How to control your emotions on the court so you don't affect your doubles partner's performance/opponent's enjoyment and win/have fun. I try to relax and focus on the next point. And forget about the mistakes made on our side.

    In terms of the birds we bring.. I don't usually bring an entire tube out because in the past I've lost whole tubes because i've forgotten them. I'll bring one or two and replentish that way. Nobody I know and play with will play an entire night and not bring out birdies. That is just a no no. If they bring out birdies consistently just one at a time, that's totally fine. I'd say if someone doesn't take out birds, I'd ask politely for them to or just not play with them.

    Things I hate about Badminton:
    - Shuttlecocks are expensive and playing rallies with birds that miss one feather is already a big deal for me. My club only gives us completely played off shuttlecocks and doesnt care replacing them.

    - Doubles. In my experiences a double rally does not last more than 2 seconds. Most time is spent with serves. On low level, I compare doubles to minigolf.

    - Trainers who teach people trickshots instead of working on footwork (happened last friday)

    I hate that badminton is overlooked. Even some top players struggle to find sponsors and make enough to a living. In tennis, players don't only get much more prize money, they also have people serving them from the littlest things (giving towers, drink, balls, etc...). Badminton players collect shuttlecocks themselves, swipe sweats with their hands and don't even have chairs to sit during break. I mean, if they want to improve a sport and take it to the next level, they should at least treat players the way they deserve to be.

    I hate people who don't spend a shuttle for a game and I have to say them "What about you? We need a now shuttle."
    I hate people who play a game, but don't have feathers. They should give me a few Euro, if I spend the shuttles for a whole game.
    I hate people with crappy feathers.
    I hate these guys who calls shots "out" or "in" which are the opposite to get points.
    I hate playing with weaker people who play every time the same crappy shot and don't learn from the consequences.
    I hate people who teach wrong technique, bad tactics and wrong footwork.
    I hate people who are talking big to weaker players but are talking small to better players.
    I hate stringers who string your racket at lower tension than requested. It's wasting of money.
    I hate people who thinks in doubles they are playing singles and must take every shot in bad position.
    I hate people who do permantly trickshots which won't work.
    I hate people who smash, but can't hit the shuttle downwards. It's a Smive. Power of Smash, but angle of a drive.

    for the person who is being really cheap, i usually asked for a shuttle to stack up on the side of the court or let it rest on a handle of the net pole. with the good used shuttles, just tell him, "hey, i'm keeping that". most people would understand if you leave the shuttle standing on the feathers instead of just laying it on its sides. for the most part since i do play on a challenge court, most are experienced with etiquette of badminton and they even return the used shuttle back to me which means they remember who offered shuttles for the games the best way is to avoid playing with such people because in the end, you're the one being unhappy, and happiness is important.

    a lot of times i ask before the game, "you got shuttles?" if the answer is a "no" then i would continue "what" you're serious?", and usually they get the point. FYI - i have absolutely no problem being rude to these people because it also annoys me and since i'm only playing them this one time, i don't really care if their feelings get hurt

    those who's played with me knows that if it's a close call, i call it in favor of my opponents because i am giving them a benefit of a doubt, at the same time i reminded myself to line judge better while i play it's part of sportsmanship in my opinion

    I hate playing with weaker people who play every time the same crappy shot and don't learn from the consequences.
    just don't play with them. but for me, my group of players consists of all different levels, and i would prefer to promote badminton a bit more, so i purposely play with beginners sometimes, and try to teach them what little i learned from my coach. they tried hard to learn and i love seeing people genuinely care about badminton, win-win for me!!!

    I hate people who teach wrong technique, bad tactics and wrong footwork.
    I hate people who are talking big to weaker players but are talking small to better players.
    just be patient and watch, they'll get smacked on the court

    I hate stringers who string your racket at lower tension than requested. It's wasting of money.
    that's just strictly unethical!

    I hate people who thinks in doubles they are playing singles and must take every shot in bad position.
    I hate people who do permantly trickshots which won't work.
    yea i stopped playing with that person from one of the groups i play with and from time to time he would ask me to play to gauge his own performance. to be fair he never got any formal training so the progress is very slow, but he tries very hard which i appreciate a lot!!!

    I hate people who smash, but can't hit the shuttle downwards. It's a Smive. Power of Smash, but angle of a drive.
    ^i actually think that it is one of the shots you must have so you give your attacking a variety?

    When someone clears it back to you and you're confident you can hit it easily but you miss because of the light going into your eyes .-.
